Taking pride in our diversity: YMCA PRIDE 2017 Speaker Series

Taking PRIDE in our diversity

The YMCA of Greater Toronto is proud of our commitment to creating inclusive and diverse spaces where everyone feels welcomed and appreciated. We are also proud of our history in hosting annual, themed PRIDE events to build awareness and explore themes related to sexual orientation and gender.

From May 31 to July 13, 2017, a speaker series on the theme “It Does Affect Me” will be held at various YMCA locations (free and open to all, registration not required). The series will explore creating inclusive spaces for gender and sexual diversity.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear and learn from various speakers, living and working in our communities, who will share their personal stories and insights.
